Trent Lolt, VMiss., "but at the same time : think it (the South) will give him strong support." Loll, the young freshman on the House Judiciary Committee svho fought a losing battle with nine other Republicans against three impeachment articles, concedes that Nixon will un- doubtably be impeached by the Souse -- and with the help of some Southern votes. "This is not a clear-cut conservative versus liberal issue," Lott said. Pro-impsachment votes from Southern, Judiciary Committee members like Rep. Walter Flowers, D-Ala., "has got to be bad for the President -- it's going to cost him some Southern votes and that's all there is to it," said Lott. Most politicians here see no hope of Nixon heading off f majority vote for Impeachmenl in the House and thus a trial in the Senate. The discussion |in the House cloakroom now centers on the size of the irn- leachment vote. .. · .

"When they see the evidence they will change their minds," Udali predicts of the Southern block. "This simple blind acceptance of the President is, I think, fading." : Indications of Nixon's waning Southern Support is reflected in he ambivalent comments from congressmen who generally support Nixon's conservatism. "I am leaning right down the middle," said Rep. Dawson stance.

Jt acknowledged that gasoline production was down, and that gasoline stocks were 20 per cent higher than this time last year. But it also said demand for gasoline was down, so it wasn't necessary to keep production at full capacity. .Critics charged the industry wants to keep price wars from breaking out, now that gasoline supplies are plentiful, because price cutting would erode oi! industry profits.

POPULATION -- There's been a marked shift in American population patterns, according to a new Census Bureau study. The report, covering what has happened to our population during the years since the 1970 census, shows a sharp drop in the U.S. growth rate. The U.S. population oh July 1, 1973 was placed at 210 million, up 3.3 per cent since the 1970 census. The most striking change, however, was a shift in migration patterns within the country. The years-long migration out of the South and into'the northern industrial states has been reversed. Between 1970 and 1973 most southern States had a net in- migration of people, while most northern industrial States experienced a heavy out-migra- OPEN DAILY 9-10; CLOSED SUNDAY WED.,THUR, FRLSAT. tion. Northern states as a whole declined in population during the three year period. Southern and Western states had a population gain in excess of 2 per cent.

One way is to buy some farm Bfld. which is increasing in at a much t}]an inflation. faster rate ,,A new Agriculture Depart- iflent study disclosed f a r m real estate rose a record 25 per cent during March expected to jump another 15 per the year which ended 1. Farm real estate is Cent in value during t h e (Sir-rent year, according to the VJSDA report. ; ;LOBBY SPENDING -- Lobby groups reported spending a record $9.5 million to influence federal legislation and policies last year. However because the law r e q u i r i n g lobby spending reports has large loopholes, this amount actually represents only a small fraction of the money spent by special interest groups to influence federal policies. Despite the loopholes, the spending reports give an indication of which special interest groups are bard at w£rk here trying to influence congressmen and bureaucrats. IBusiness groups reported spending the most. $3.3 million Ia$t. year. Next biggest lobby sjwnder was organized labor which reported spending $1.9 million. Professional groups, representing such occupations as doctors and lawyers, spent $732,000 while farm interests reported spending $672,000. BIKE SAFETY -- Starling the first of next year, all bicy cles sold in the U.S. must meet new federal safety standards. Ordered by the .Consumer Product Safety Commission, the rules set requirements for bike f r a m e s , steering systems, wheels, brakes and reflectors. Bicycles rank number one on t f f « commission's product hazard index, blamed for inju rISs to more t h a n a million per- sdtts annually. The standards art designed to reduce bike iiv juries. Jury Selected In Crossell Trial LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) -- Six jurors were selected Tuesday as the trial of James Williams, 43, of Crossett, who is accused of the rape and slaying of Maudine Deggs of near Crossett, opened here.. The jury selection will resume today. " Circuit Court Judge G. B. Colvin of Dermott, who is presiding, granted a change of venue from Ashley County Circuit Court because of publicity. Robert Morehead of Pine Bluff, Williams 1 court-appointed lawyer, had moved that the jury panel be quashed, but Colvin overruled that motion. Morehead alleged that the jury wheel favored landowners and business and professonal persons in the upper-age bracket and discriminated if gainst the young wage earners. Williams was convicted of the charge in 1964. He received the death penalty but his sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment by the late former Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. The Arkansas Supreme Coart later ordered a new trial because of alleged discrimination in the selection of an all-white jury. Williams is black. State Rice Harvest Comes In Early STUTTGART, Ark. (AP) The Arkansas rice harvest, which began Tuesday, is 10 days ahead of the first rice dates of recent years.
